Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been a constant fixture on television over the years, being a professional wrestler and key player in the WWF/WWE, and accomplished actor, appearing in over twenty films over the years.
He is back on the small screen, not to entertain via his wrestling, but with an adventure-based reality competition. Titled ‘The Hero’, the competition series set in Panamá, follows nine contestants from all walks of life.
Each week, the contestants will be tested, physically, mentally, and morally, as they try to prove that they truly deserve the title of “The Hero” and the life-changing grand prize that goes with it.
Contestants are playing for a possible grand prize of $1 million, that is based upon their own morals; monetary prizes given for winning challenges can be pocketed by the winner, or put back into the pot to increase the grand prize. There are various challenges that benefit the American Red Cross, solidifying the mission and title of the show.
